2013 Testimonials

Thanks again for the most inspiring four days! I absolutely loved your approach to teaching. Your sense of humor made it more than just a learning experience and was a big factor in what for me, was the best workshop I’ve attended.

I recently took Rick Hulbert’s Urban photography and just thought it was fantastic. His teaching skills were amazing, and his images breathtaking. I learned so much about lens correction and post production. I would not hesitate recommending him to others.
— Leslie Nelson
I enjoyed the whole experience enormously. I learned several things that I have been able to put into practice right away, which is tremendously satisfying. Your relaxed teaching style encouraged a lot of group interaction, so I also learned a lot from other group members; an unexpected bonus.

Rick’s direction and instruction opened my eyes to new photographic possibilities. The workshop was rich in information, technique, and an appreciation of the art of urban and architectural photography. It was a wonderful experience and I recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their compositional technique and image editing skills. Well done, Rick!
— Ron Courtright
Thank you for putting together a fantastic course. I’ve taken many classes and this one was definitely one of my favorites. You have an excellent teaching style and I felt that it was easy to absorb the information that you were presenting. I’m a visual learner and one that enjoys a little humor mixed in so it was a great weekend and I’ll be looking forward to future classes that you’ll be teaching.
— Glen Murray
I attend a lot of workshops, and your class stands out as the most impactful and useful. Your guidance during the lecture and review was immediately applicable and actionable, and I know I have become a better photographer already. The number of “aha!” moments was impressive, and my one regret was that it wasn’t a full week - or longer - workshop.
— Lala Mamedov
Your Travel Photography with an Architectural ‘bias’ was outstanding or to put it in a teacher’s marking guide it gets an A++. The pictures illustrating your point of view were appropriate and certainly reinforced the spoken part. To hold our attention and interest as you did is certainly the mark of a speaker who not only knows his subject well but can pass such learning to others.
— Tommy Thomas
Thanks for one of the best photographic learning experiences I’ve had. And I’ve had a lot. I could not have designed a more efficient way to learn the art and science of photography of architecture.
Thanks for all the work you put into this, and for going above and beyond, way beyond, what we expected from the workshop.
— Neil Boyle
Thank you so much for delivering such a quality presentation so densely packed with concise and practical instruction in such a short period of time! Your course had an immediate positive impact on my photography, and opened my eyes to options in pre and post visualization I had never considered or really understood. In addition to your background and expertise in architecture and photography, your honest teaching style combined with a sense of humor kept me engaged through the 2 day course without feeling self-conscious about my own level of photographic skill and knowledge. I will be certain to attend more of your classes.
— Mike Stanway
Many thanks for an incredibly informative and fun weekend. It has changed how I see, photograph and relate to buildings and has definitely improved my level of photography. Watching you manipulate images on the computer is priceless teaching and can never be reproduced in a manual or video tutorial. I do appreciate the work and care you take to produce such a quality course. It is definitely one that I would like to take again.

This also has to be the first time for me that someone’s said they’d send their slide notes and did! Bravo!
